REMINDER: NNZ TO IMPLEMENT NEW INF RULES

NNZ will implement the new Official Rules of Netball, as set down by the International Netball Federation (INF), from January 1, 2016  - read more via this NNZ link or read on below...

Key changes include the elimination of whistle following a goal, amendments to injury time and changes to setting a penalty.

The rule changes are the result of a review by the INF’s Rules Advisory Panel, and were presented to and voted upon by the INF Congress during Netball World Cup SYDNEY 2015.

Netball New Zealand Chief Executive Hilary Poole believes the changes will further increase the amount of active game time in a Netball match, which already exceeds that of most sports.

“The feedback we have received about the rule changes from players, coaches and umpires has been overwhelming positive,” Poole said.

“I firmly believe the changes will continue to move the sport in a positive direction, as well as improve player enjoyment at all levels and make the game more spectator friendly at the elite level.”

The new Official Rules of Netball are available from the International Netball Federation (INF) website.

Summary of Rule Changes

  • Umpires will no longer have to blow their whistle to indicate that a goal has been scored, or when the ball has clearly gone out of court.
  • If a player calls injury time, they must now leave the court within 30 seconds, and be substituted by another player, unless the team’s primary carer indicates that more time is needed. 
  • Players can receive cautions and warnings, before being suspended from the game, or ordered off, depending on the severity of the offence.
  • Teams will no longer have to wait for the infringing player to stand down before they take a penalty pass.
